Safety

I take care of each and every placenta and it's processing, with the utmost care, respect, and safety it deserves. 

  • Dedicated work space. All placentas are clearly labeled with clients name and date received, then stored in a dedicated refrigerator with its temperature monitored at regular intervals

  • Placentas are kept refrigerated until processing can begin

  • I work on only one placenta at a time so that there is no chance of a mix-up

  • Dehydration takes place in only a high quality dehydrator with a temperature gauge, never an oven

  • Certifications in OSHA standards & precautions, BBP protocol and ServSafe guidelines are strictly adhered to for your protection and mine

  • All surfaces are washed and sanitized in bleach solution prior to use

  • All personal protective equipment (disposable gloves, aprons, etc.) are used EVERY time

  • All surfaces and equipment are washed, sanitized or disposed of between each use

  • As many disposable items are used as possible (apron, gloves, bowls, knifes, etc)

  • All reusable equipment are sanitized in a bleach solution for at least 10 minutes per OSHA guidelines

  • All items receive a clean water rinse to remove bleach residue
